Not irrelevant to the support or the league or the city, or indeed to football in general right now of all times. Something really snobby about calling them that, no one is forcing you to watch!

Agree, what a strange comment considering its a capitol derby and about the only footy available at the moment. Looking forward to this

Probably should be 1-0. Great save.

While what you say is true, sometimes people get carried away its a game based on passion even in times such as these. You can't just switch it on and off.

I agree with your point, but players cannot be running to the halfway line to jump on staff.

I would agree with that, I didn't actually see it. But then I am thinking of our guys when they win the title, it will be difficult to keep control in that situation.

Hertha the better side, but Union's style isn't making it easy or a great spectacle if we're honest.

Hertha Berlin and Union not the most interesting game on paper two irrelevant teams, roll on Gladbach and Leverkusen that will be a banger!

It's been reflected in the game, not very good. No flow at all.

There should be a couple of decent ones tomorrow, I was thinking about watching the Dortmund/Wolfsburg game, but the Gladbach/Bayer game looks the one. It'll probably be 0-0 now with goals galore across the rest  ;D

Gikiewicz has been great this season, one of the stand out goalies, he's been around for such a long time, but apart from a couple games for Freiburg 2 or 3 years ago, has never played at the top level before this season. But he's just really stood out, likely Union's player of the season so far along with Sebastian Andersson. He's leaving them at the end of the season though. Big shoes to fill!

They certainly are not a very fun team to watch at the best of times - it's why their fans are always more interesting! Doing what they need to do with what is a 2nd division squad bar 3 or 4 players.

One of the best cities in the world. History is all around you there and there are plenty of free things to do. I'd highly recommend doing the tour of the Bundestag Dome. You have to book in advance, but it is worth it (and free)

Some are great! Bremen have the best, Mainz have a good one, and Frankfurt one is class too.

Bayern’s is the absolute worst.

2-0

I think he was very rated when he was at Hoffenheim, he had that incredible first season in the league that shot him into the limelight. Did well for Stuttgart as well. He just never took that step to a big club though, barely played in Europe in his long career.

Who had Hertha as the team to watch after the restart? :o

Absolutely just seeing some football was a good lift last weekend. I know its still bad were you are, so keep safe and watch some more German football some good games on today.

hey that's my normal footy weekend  ;D  Yep, of course Liverpool too, but Buli games as much as as well.

What's the pick of the afternoon matches, i might watch Gladbach sorry A German Team ;D vs Leverkusen?

Gladbach vs Leverkusen in terms off importance, a Rheinland derby, and both teams coming off impressive performances and good wins last week.

Gladbach 3rd in the table, Leverkusen 5th, but just a point behind 4th.

Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund may be ok as well, although I'd expect a comfortalbe Dortmund win.

I am tempted to watch Freiburg vs Werder Bremen to be honest  ;D  Love me a bit of Freiburg, and always had a major soft spot for Bremen.

I can safely say that Paderborn 07 vs TSG Hoffenheim will be the least watched match of these first 4 today  ;D
